Metro Foodland–Last African-American Owned Full-Service Grocery Store in Detroit


James Hooks has owned and operated Metro Foodland in northwest Detroit in the Grandland Shopping Center for over 27 years. Metro Foodland is the only Black-owned full-service grocery store in Detroit and one of the last in the entire United States.

A proposed Meijer superstore in the location of the now-closed Redford High School less than a mile from Metro Foodland threatens the viability of the independent grocery store.


YOU can support Metro Foodland by committing to shop there 27 times this year and purchasing at least $27.00 with each visit. 27 visits and $27 in separate purchases to celebrate 27 years of success.
